Liverpool fans hail James Milner after Leicester victory

Liverpool fans have hailed James Milner after his match-winning performance against Leicester City on Saturday.

The midfielder laid on the assist for Sadio Mane’s first goal and scored the winner from the penalty spot in the dying minutes after the Senegal international was fouled in the area.

The win was Liverpool’s eighth in their opening eight games of the season and they subsequently top the league, with an eight-point gap to Manchester City, who play Wolves on Sunday.

And fans have taken to Twitter to hail the 33-year-old, who had made just one Premier League start prior to the clash with Leicester.
